New knitter! Help with hat please!
I have just been knitting for a month or so. I live in S.Korea and cannot find double pointed needles, and they only have bamboo cable needles (with rather thick cables) and I really want to make a hat (for my baby and hubby)! Any tips?

Can I knit a few "triangle"-type pieces (say, 4 or 6) and then sew them together? Is that ridiculous?

Thanks in advance!

There are patterns that call for straight needles--check out .

Also, Amy has videos and tips on making your own double-pointed needles!

I found a few more that I had bookmarked when I was learning.
Two Needle Underemployed Hat
Two Needle Baby Hat
Lake Park Hat

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
